Home Again

Our epic 2018 Summer journey is over. We’re back home after 54 days away from Phoenix’ heat. Some milestones:

  • 47 blog posts including this one
  • 11,674 miles (somewhere in Kansas on the way home the odometer turned over 100,000)
  • 30 states visited, some of them 3 or 4 times (Kay and I both logged our 50th state – mine was North Dakota; hers, Minnesota)
  • 18 Marriott hotels (14 Fairfield Inns, 2 TownePlace Suites, 1 Residence Inn, and 1 Marriott, bringing total Marriott Reward stays to 47 nights plus 6 rewarded nights, more than when I was working. Several of these we stopped at east bound and west bound.)
  • Misc stays: 1 Holiday Inn, 1 Park City condo, 1 Yellowstone Lodge, 1 Econolodge and many nights with friends and family
  • 93 friends and family visited, not counting the wedding and a Boyertown party
  • 1 windshield replaced
  • countless photos taken
  • 0 – number of times we turned on the TV in the room
  • lots of wild animals, my favorite was the grizzly bear in Yellowstone
  • hundreds of thousands of cattle in two feedlots in the Texas panhandle

All those tiny, tiny black dots are cows.
